Feature: Kerry Hill
Crafting Modernism in Asia Pacific
In this issue, we feature the works of Kerry Hill, who is firmly rooted in modernism and questions its relevance in this day and age, and also in the context of the land and its culture.
The selected projects consist of various typologies and locales ranging from houses to institutions, with a focus on those in the Asia Pacific region amongst his many other works around the world. The major works featured here are Amankora in Bhutan, ITC Sonar Bangla and Aman New Delhi in India, all newly photographed for this issue.
Along with these projects, we include three articles. The first is Geoffrey Londons essay, An Evolving Practice, which tracks the trajectory of Kerry Hills career and the refinement of his designs. In Erwin J. S. Virays interview and the conversation between Kerry Hill and three young Singaporean architects, we explore Kerry Hills interest in spatial composition, site and context, and the challenges of architecture and practice in Singapore.
